The House is located opposite the sea, overlooking the islands of Asia. The project aims to demonstrate the connection between an abstract architecture and its environment, establishing a relationship between man and nature, between the desert and the sea.
Desert creates the need to create a space of privacy in the vastness of its territory, the ocean invites to open towards the horizon. The logic used in the design of this House is subtractive. The lot occupied with the maximum aren’t area through a solid volume of geometric rigour, which was then drilled generating a sunken courtyard.
The roof of the front terrace is a cantilever with the same proportion of the courtyard, a “shift” from the horizontal plane of the roof. Thus, establishing a vertical relationship with the sky and the other horizontally to the sea.
In this way a dialectic relationship between closing and opening, opacity and transparency, privacy and exteriority is achieved at the architectural level.
